Philadelphia Forgings is a reliable nationwide
supplier of high-quality forged products. Based in southeastern
Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Forgingss customer base is concentrated
largely in our home state as well as New Jersey and Delaware but
also extends to various customers located throughout the United
States. Inconel® forgings compose an important component of
our extensive supply of exceptional forgings.
Properties of Inconel®
Inconel® is a trademarked material that
is primarily composed of nickel but that also contains iron and
some chromium. Inconel® forgings are extremely resistant to
corrosion and additionally retain strength in elevated temperatures.
Inconel®, being a nickel alloy, also has a low thermal
expansion coefficient which makes it ideal for high-temperature
Philadelphia Forgings offers metal forgings in the following
types of Inconel®:
Inconel® 600 is a nickel alloy. Its forgings offer high strength and
a moderate level of corrosion resistance.
Inconel® 601, also a nickel alloy, composes forgings that resist deformation
as well as stress cracking in high temperature applications. The
addition of aluminum and silicon improve this alloys resistance
Inconel® 625 forgings contain aluminum as well as titanium and are often
age hardened for increased resistance to common types of metal fatigue.
Inconel® 718 is combined with niobium for the production of forgings
that retain strength during lower temperature applications.
Inconel® 725 contains niobium, titanium, and molybdenum. Its forgings
are precipitation hardened to increase strength and resist creep
at higher temperatures.
Inconel® X-750 forgings contain a higher level of chromium and demonstrate
a higher level of corrosion resistance.
Inconel® 800 forgings are composed of a basic nickel alloy that can resist
oxidation and carburization at high temperatures.
Inconel® 800 HT is alloyed with aluminum and titanium. Its forgings have
a higher level of heat resistance as well as other good mechanical
Inconel® 825 forgings are often used for marine applications due to their
higher titanium and molybdenum content which resists pitting, stress
cracking, and corrosion.
903 forgings have a low thermal expansion coefficient and provide
high levels of strength in elevated temperatures.
